Washington (AP) - An administration official says President Barack Obama is planning to meet with former President Bill Clinton at the White House.

The meeting set for Friday comes as Obama adjusts his tactics to deal with an emboldened Republican Party. The GOP takes control of the House in January.

Clinton had to deal with a similar scenario in the middle of his first term in office and ended up working with Republicans to negotiate and advance his agenda.

The official confirmed the meeting on condition of anonymity because it had not yet been announced by the White House.
